Greece Interviews

Here is our section with interviews. In order to present interesting themes and various aspects of the Greek culture, we have taken interviews from various people and professionals: from foreigners who have lived and worked in Greece for many years and managers of alternative holiday venues or museums, to American film producers who have set their movie in Greece.

Do you know someone who is worth a presentation through our interviews section? Have you launched something special related to Greece? Feel free to contact us and tell us your ideas.
